WHY YOUR BUSINESS NEEDS TO PUT COACHING FIRST
 
Learning, developing, growing – there’s a reason these three words go together.  You can’t have one without the other. They depend on each other. I’ve worked in businesses that place a high value on coaching and ones that don’t.  And the ones that don’t are the businesses that stagnate.
 
 
 
THE MELTING POT PODCAST
 
Neal Gandhi: On Breaking Moulds and Championing Collaboration

This week, Dom's talking to Neal Gandhi, CEO of Panoply, a world-class creative technology group. Configured as a lean, fluid and ego-aside family of complementary tech-focused companies, Panoply collaborates with brave organisations, both at home and abroad, to ensure their participation in tomorrow—and beyond.

For Neal, collaboration is key to success. It is one of the tenets of Panoply—their team is collaborative to the core.
 
 
 
 
THE DIARY OF A CEO

The Procrastinating Caveman: What Human Evolution Teaches Us About Why We Put Off Work and How to Stop
Rewind time 100,000 years ago: several different species of humans co-exist on earth.There was, of course, our own species, Homo sapien, but we were joined by our more athletic siblings from the Tree of Life, Homo erectus, who had left Africa and colonized Asia long before we ventured beyond the mother continent, all the while another sibling, the stocky Neanderthal, was hunkered down in a European ice age. Advance another 90,000 years, however, and our species is the only game left in town.

Scientists have worked hard to figure out why we survived...
 
make your guiding principles useful

Early in my first tour in the Army I received a copy of an unusual document I’d never come across before. Two sides of A4, typed and headed; it was the Commanding Officer’s Command Philosophy. ‘His philosophy?’, I thought. ‘Does he think he’s Plato?’
 

Since then I’ve wised up. I’ve seen many more command philosophies, company directives and regimental ethoses. Some have been good enough that I’ve saved copies ready to perhaps use myself one day. The reality is that when you reach a certain level of leadership you need to communicate in writing how you want the team to work and what you want the team to value.

 
Get lost in the new Earth Timelapse, now on mobile
Today we’re introducing several updates to Google Earth Timelapse, a global, zoomable time-lapse video that lets anyone explore the last 35 years of our changing planet’s surface—from the global scale to the local scale. This update adds two additional years of imagery to the time-series visualization, now spanning from 1984 to 2018, along with mobile support and visual upgrades to make exploring more accessible and intuitive.

THE UNDOING PROJECT BY MICHAEL LEWIS
